Papyrus Race Team

About the Cog Set Papyrus Racing Club

Cog Set Papyrus Racing Club is for riders from Youth A upwards to adults. We feel we are a bit different insofar as we have partnered up with a charity, Papyrus whose aim is to prevent suicide in young people. In 2016,  we lost a rider, Kyle Lewis, who took his own life seemingly out of the blue. This has profoundly shaped everyone involved in the club. We are very proud to make our ethos promotion of this amazing charity as oppose to say promoting a bike shop.

Otley Grand Prix

A few of the Papyrus and Cog Set riders made the trip to Otley for the 2019 Otley Grand Prix. The sun was out and there were crowds of people lining the finishing straight.

It was very hot and the heat took it's toll on the riders but Tom finished midway down in the lead group of boys and Esther finished 8th in the girls race.

Isle of Man Youth Tour 2019

CogSet Papyrus were well represented at the 2019 Isle of Man Youth Tour.

Stage 1 was not the usually sea front course this year but was still a short time trial but this year was uphill!

Stage 2 was a hill stage that had been part of previous tours but the riders definitely appreciated the fresh tarmac on the descent.

It was the first time our riders had raced on the stage 3 course - it was flat and fast which led to some exciting racing.
